- anything that accesses related areas (in case of VGA: PIO accesses to
the control ports). I'm providing memory_region_set_flush_coalesced that
allows to flush on non-coalesced region accesses as well. Some PIO
accesses unfortunately still need open-coded
qemu_flush_coalesced_mmio_buffer as they do not use memory regions yet.

Good point, need to address this.
